Ed and Sylvia Christy have been working to plant churches in the Bordeaux region of France since 1990 with Baptist Mid-Missions. They have found many opportunities as well as faced great challenges in establishing a strong community of Christ-followers. Their first church plant now has its own French pastor and building. Currently, the Christys are launching a new church in St. Medard-en-Jalles. Ed and Sylvia have two grown children: Grant, who is an accountant in San Francisco, and Jana, recently married and finishing her degree in France.
Way to Pray: We need a larger meeting place for our church that satisfies safety codes, parking requirements, and is within our budget.
We ask that God would cause our paths to cross the paths of people in whose lives He is working. We’d love to see new French laborers for the harvest as well as new missionaries come alongside of us.
